It’s nearly impossible to discuss the Greasy Creek watershed, or even the history of Dry Creek, without mentioning longtime cowman, Earl McKee. Going four-score strong, he’s been my neighbor for over forty years as well as a surrogate father from time to time.
Among his many activities, like playing the tuba in the well-traveled High Sierra Jazz Band, he’s been photographing brandings for many years now, focusing on the lariat loop. In coming days, we will be sharing some of these.
That top shot’s a classic, and somebody should draw it or paint it or sculpt it.
And Earl should write a book!
